Ribbed Annabelle

 

Ribbed Annabelle

Do you like the big leaf lace pattern of Snelle Annabelle, but not the way the leaves curl up? Then try this ribbed version. Thanks to Ravelry's Breipret, who charted and testknitted this version.

    

Size:
The ribbed Annabelle in the pictures above measures about 125 cm. This is enough to wrap it around your neck two times. A cowl of about 180 cm can be wrapped three times.  See remarks and tips about sizing below) 

Materials:
For Snelle Annabelle:
Scheepjes, Peru [80% microfaser, 20% alpaca; 82 yd/75 m per 100g skein]; color: grey 060; 3 skeins. Gauge according to yarn label: 10 sts x 17 rows = 4 inch/10 cm.
For Ribbed Annabelle 'Breipret' used Zeeman Royal (taken double). 

1 set(s)US#13/9mm straight needles

(1 extra needle for 3-needle bind off) 

Abbreviations:

P: purl

K3tog: knit 3 s together

Yo: yarn over

Sk2p: slip 1s, knit 2s tog, and pass slipped stitch over

Repeat rows 1 – 40 at least three more times (8 leaves). Work extra repeats to require the length you prefer. 

 

 

Finishing:

If you used provisional cast on, connect scarf ends by using 3-needles bind off. If not, BO all sts and sew/graft scarf ends together. Be careful not to twist.

Weave in yarn ends. 

Tips about sizing:

- Size of the cowl is based on the designer’s loose knitting style.  

- Yarn label gauge will result in a slightly less wide, less long cowl. Other yarns may also result in less wide, less long cowl. Usually this is no problem.

- You can lengthen your cowl by working more (full) pattern repeats.

- You can make a wider scarf by casting on more stitches (even number). Work in line with the pattern and start second leaf (like in unaltered pattern row 21) when you have 6 sts left before decrease stitch.
